About Me

I'm into arts. I want to learn different cultures, customs, traditions, foods etc. of all countries and I won't be able to travel all around the world, so I just thought that I might want to have postcards instead.

The Frustrated Artist

As I've said, I'm into arts. I so love it. I've always wanted my artworks to be recognized, but unfortunately nobody has ever said that my works are good (well some of my friends said that, but I don't know if that's true). Eversince I graduated college, I was really hoping that I would get a nice job as a designer, but I wasn't able to find one. For a year, I was really frustrated. Sometimes I would cry at night why these things happened. Why artists are not that recognized in my country etc. As of now, I'm a language teacher, but still I can not stop what my heart what it really loves most... Arts. Well, maybe I would try making ATC's and ask people who will receive it if I should really be a frustrated artist or not.

Whacha think? A. I'll be a famous artist while I'm still alive. B. I'll be a famous artist when I'm already dead. C. I'll never be famous.

Something About The Swap

Today is June 21, 2007. I just received my first swap. It was wonderful! Not just the thing I received but also the feeling. I just find myself being addicted now to swapping! For the 2 person I've sent stickers (Jewels and May-Lis) I'm sorry for just giving you exact 25 stickers and it's not as grand as everyone else you've swapped to. I hope to swap with you again and give you guys something much better! Forgive the newbie! I suddenly got addicted to swapping. And people all around me don't get it. Anyway, I don't care about what they think. It's me who's enjoying right?

Favorite Color

I like pink, red, black, brown and violet. (any other colors are ok too)

Likes (Things)

Stationeries, stickers, postcards. Recently I received very nice notecards and I like it! I'm really looking forward to anyone who'd send me extra notecards. Don't care if it's all the same. Big or small. And of course anything handmade! I really like receiving things that are handmade. It's more sincere. Recently I've tried making handmade jewels. It's a lot of fun and can't wait to swap it! I just hope that the receiver will like it. I love animals! My favorite: dog and giraffe!

Work

I'm working as a language teacher now. I enjoy my job. I meet a lot of new people. I'm not a strict teacher. Being strict would just make the class more uncomfortable and very hard to understand, specially because it's a language class. So what I do is we sing in class and let them watch anime (I'm teaching Japanese), and hangout with them at Japanese restaurants to enjoy the food and read Japanese characters in the menu!

Japanese Movies/Series/Anime

Zatoitchi, X 1999, Grave of the Fireflies, Strawberry on the Shortcake, Boku Dake no Madonna, Hunter X Hunter, Spirited Away, Doraemon, Detective Conan, One Piece, Prince of Tennis

Hi Ignore my last comment. I found your angel card in a different pile(trying to organize!). Thanks, Phoenix

Phoenix on Jan 2, 2008:

I just noticed I didn't get a Christmas Postcard from you. Did you send one? Phoenix

dandelion on Aug 31, 2007:

Thank you for the GREAT one-to-one swap Postcards for Notecards! I enjoyed all of the wonderful postcards that you sent me. Thanks again!! DeAnne

Suzanne on Aug 2, 2007:

Ann, you are being really horrible to Frogman. Could you maybe hold your tongue a little and leave some things unsaid instead of screaming at him over and over?

It's just...reflecting poorly on everyone.

Annette on Jul 24, 2007:

Hooray! Ann, I'm so happy you received the stationery and thrilled that you enjoyed it. Thank you for your kind note. :)
